Did you know that you can use the string art templates on more surfaces than just paper? I have been a long time lover of all things string art. I've created lots of scrapbook layouts and cards over the years using string art, and decided that it would be fun to make my own hanging decor.
First, I purchased the wooden sign from my local craft store, and then I used tape to adhere my template to it. This step really comes in handy so that your template does not slip or move when you are making the holes.
Next, I used a pencil to make a small mark where each nail should go. After I made my marks, I removed the template so that I could position my nails.
I used small panel nails for this project. One at a time I positioned each nail where my marks were, and used a small hammer to pound them in.
Once all of your nails are in place, just use the string (included with the template) and follow the guidelines (on the template) to create your own one of a kind piece.
I randomly added beads to my string before tying each line down. Once my piece was strung, I added the Thicker phrase word sticker "wander" and an arrow. I finished by adding a few chipboard stickers to the design.
Have you given the string art templates a try yet? I would love for you to share how you are using them with me!
